Spell. If target hostile animated undead has a master, its bond to its master is broken, making it hostile to all other creatures. If it had no master, you become its master. (50% failure chance with Death Magic 4 or less.)
- Concise description
Spell. Make target undead servant masterless. If it is already masterless, you become its master. 50% failure chance unless Death Magic 5 or more.
- Verata the Necromancer (Kessex Peak — sometimes spawns if The Villainy of Galrath is active; always appears if it is not.)
- Although it only allows you to disconnect one minion or to take control of one, its quick recharge and low energy cost is good for taking small groups of minions or taking masterless undead.
- Good synergy with Malign Intervention.
- Although it is possible to take control of a minion, it is not possible to take control of effects on that minion. For example, Death Nova will damage the enemies of whoever cast it and not the present controller of the minion. Similarly, Dwayna's Sorrow will heal the party of the caster. The exception to this is Jagged Bones, which will create a minion under the control of whoever controls the minion when it dies.
